Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Baking cookies is one of my favorite hobbies. Chocolate chunk cookies are among my very favorites. I had the idea for these cookies last week while walking through Trader Joe’s when I saw their freeze dried strawberries. So glad I added them to my cookies. They are colorful and delicious! Be sure to not substitute fresh or frozen strawberries….I’ve tried it and it makes a soggy, not great cookie. Freeze dried is the way to go! Hope you enjoy!
How To Bake Cookies
Why Do We Need To Cream Butter And Sugar When Baking Cookies?
- Creaming incorporates the maximum amount of air bubbles so a recipe will rise in the oven and be light in texture. Creaming is done by beating with either a paddle attachment from your stand mixer or it can also be done by hand. Start on low speed until all ingredients have been incorporated, then switch to medium speed, making sure to scrape the bowl down periodically to make sure all ingredients have been mixed thoroughly.
